I actually love holiday makeup because it’s such an easy way to dress up and get festive, especially if you’re not into sparkly outfits. I teamed up with Shoppers Drug Mart to use 5 products to create a day to night holiday makeup look: one has more of a gold shimmery eye, with soft winged liner and a nude gloss…and then I upped the drama with a smokey eye and red lip for a more glamorous evening look. 

All of these products also make great luxe stocking stuffers (and the Urban Decay Naked Honey palette works for every skin tone). Happy Shopping!

    Hi it’s Susie Serwer again. I saw the name …

    Lip lacquer by Lancôme Beige Sensation but you’re lips look a lot more matte. Did u put a balm on your lips to get that look ?? Or is it just worn down ??

      Hi Susie! It’s just worn down, so the shine is mostly gone.

      You can also use a powder over your lips (just lightly) if you want a matte finish on a shinier lipstick!
